    Each concourse has a huge sculptural centerpiece. Terminal A: massive train tracks. B: big metal arch. C: beautiful manicured vaguely Japanese gardens that you can't walk in and Bill Daniels’s jet.

    First airport to offer this: Make free 10-minute international phone calls to most countries or unlimited USA calls from any of the "pay" phones at DIA! So convenient for international travelers!

    Concourse C has these pristine vaguely Japanese gardens that seem cruise shippishly manicured by underpaid men. Yet there is no entrance onto them whatsoever. Add it to the list of DEN conspiracies.

    Skip the main security in the center of the terminal and walk the bridge to Concourse A, it's always half the length/time. If you're flying out of B or C, you can easily grab the train from here

    The Demon Horse, masonic symbols, and creepy murals - conspiracy theorists say these point to a large, underground bunker built beneath DIA to protect the world's elite when the world ends. Yep. Read more

    Probably the longest airport to get into or out of. Takes about 30 minutes just to get from your gate to baggage, then plan on 30 more if you're shuttling to a rental car place. Slowest security ever.

    Google "Denver airport conspiracy theory" and be engrossed while you wait for your flight. Remember, the barbed wire is positioned to keep you IN! Don't miss the freaky murals.

    If headed to the mountains, always choose Uber options. From/To Vail in UberXL US280.00 and UberSUV US420.00. During winter, just make sure that the car that picks you up has the right gear and tires.

    One of my favorite airports in the US. Security was fast, lots of decent restaurants, very clean with places to charge laptops/phones. This airport is huge! So plan enough time to reach your gate.

    Udi's just opened in Terminal B near B25(ish). Local company, great healthy food including gluten-free, salads you want to eat, even a quinoa option. Plus the best bread from a chain in Denver. :)

    TSA really has their act together overall here - this is my home airport and the flow is always better than an average airport of equivalent size. They are especially good today as there is no at all.

    There are 3 security line options regardless of airline: north, south & the bridge to concourse A (north end). Each has direct access to the train which will quickly take you to any of the concourses.

    Love the service, the cafes and food places there are great, but the only, one and only thing I had a small tiny problem with was the baggage claim. It takes a while before the baggage comes out...

    TSA TIP #3 Remove your laptop(s) and shoes/belts while waiting in line for the x-ray machines and carry them in your hands to be ready for the bins, remember laptops are placed in a bin by itself.

    If you are hungry and looking for a decent meal in Concourse B, definitely check out Itza Wrap! in the center, it's kinda hidden, but you have a wide selection of combinations at pretty decent prices.

    If you are looking for a quiet place with good wifi signal, be sure to seek out the business cubicle's. Also a great place to people watch from above. Spent many hours on netflix up there.

    If you need a trusty, efficient, and budget friendly ride to parts outside of Denver...like Keystone or Vail, check out Colorado Mountain Express. Excellent service and free WIFI on their vehicles.

    Always ask one of the friendly, cowboy hat wearing volunteers which security line is shortest at the time. They're on top of it. Also there is a little known third security checkpoint on the top level

    Gates are easy to find, rather a medium airport however MSP airport is very big and has A through F gates with 22 entry's big airport MSP is. DEN airport is easy to navigate and locate your gate. :)

    In Concourse B, if the bars on the lower level are crowded (particularly during sports), check the bars in the mezzanine in the center of the concourse. Much easier to find a seat up there.

    Concourse C breakfast hack: Coming off the escalators make a quick left and hit up La Casita for a small side of their green chile. Pour over fries at McD's or breakfast bowl from Villa Pizza.

    Hunkering for your starbucks craving? There's only two in the entire airport; both in concourse B. One is by B90 at the very end and the other just before the stairs to the express jets.

    Cool airport with so much art and little widgets stuck here and there. There is construction so be prepared on pickup and dropoff. Quite easy to get in and out. Baggage usually pretty quick.

    This helps guys not at all, but the women's room on the baggage-claim/security level -- East Side-- is pretty amazing. Glass tiles, huge private stalls... Makes me giggle nearly every time I visit.

    If you need transportation to a downtown hotel, use SuperShuttle. Round trip was about $30. Pretty fast and painless. However, you will have a bus full so get comfy. Window seats are the best.

    All train tunnels toward Concourse C are lined with pinwheels. Tunnels toward the Terminal are lined with hatchets. WITH HATCHETS. Sit in the very back or front of any train to get the best view.

    If you need a shuttle to the airport hotels, wait on the east side of the terminal. Shuttles pick up from that side first. If full, they may not come by on the west side and you'll be waiting for ages

    Want really tasty, farm-to-table food that's also quick? Go to concourse C and eat at Root Down. You won't be disappointed. Their breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails are amazing.

    Use the upper floor for departures instead of arrivals. 5th floor pickups are a PITA. Have your ride wait in the cell area on pena and make the easy pickup on 6th w/out fighting the idiots on 5.

    The Taco Bell here is one of the only decent ones in the state of Colorado. Get it before you go through security and eat it at the gate. Of course, you have to get the drink gate side.

    The people that work here are extremely nice, empathetic and helpful! I'm terrified of flying & they did everything in their power to make sure I had a pleasant experience on & off the plane.

    If you are looking to avoid the crowds and relax, head to the upper level of terminals A and C. Also, the upper level of terminal B has fancy chairs with built-in power outlets.

    If you have time before your flight leaves & the food in your terminal isn't too your liking, you can easily catch a tram to one of the other terminals for some other food without leaving security.

    Ground transport information kiosk guides you how to get a comfortable van in remote area such as Flatiron instead of getting a taxi. 30 min ride of 36 km is 27$ with few stops with no roundabout.

    If waiting in the A terminal, there are some quieter seats nestled above the gates. Some seats are facing each other, and great for stretching out. Sometimes u can get lucky with power outlets.

    The rental cars are not in the airport. You have to take a shuttle so make sure to add in additional time. Also, the security check is horrible so you'll need extra time for that too.

    check out Que Bueno! Mexican Grille (Terminal B, near Gate B52) – We love it for its super-friendly bartenders, and awesomely inexpensive, delicious and huge-portioned burritos made fresh

    If you've got a connecting flight on United, make sure when booking, to give yourself plenty of time between connections as this is a big ass airport & it could take you a while getting to your gate.

    Watch out for the 40% tax on rental cars and the Tollroad where you MUST have one of their payment boxes in the car or you will get a $400 fine. There are no signs to warn you. Shame on you Denver!!!

    If you are at the main terminal picking someone up or just visiting in the main terminal, don't forget to stop by to take a picture with Xolotl, a colorful 14-feet tall "alebrije".

    With the construction, everything is different / backwards. Shuttles from rental car facilities and hotels drop you off on opposite side you are used to. Take note/avoid twirling around like I did.

    They have a Clear lane, which is probably worth it if you fly in and out of here often. The Pre Check lane is filed with passengers who don't know what they're doing and slow the process up.

    The only airport in America where the Premier line at security is longer than the other line. Understaffed and also includes airline workers, elderly, left-handed people, those with peanut allergies..

    Layover? Stop by the New Belgium Brewery Bar near B80. Fine New Belgium brews on draft and captivating airport views. It's a bit of a hike, but worth it. Great airport bar.

    Ham, egg and cheese croissant at Pour La France at the top of the escalator from the train in B Concourse - delish. Pair with an espresso and your doing alright for airport food.
